Workout Rundown

Monday

Leg press, extensions, and curls, calf raises, and dumbbell deadlifts plus Day 8 P90.

Tuesday

30 minutes of running, which I substituted for P90 Sweat A, and then did P90’s Ab Ripper A.

Wednesday

Managed to get through P90 Sculpt A, but wasn’t really feeling it. One-arm dumbbell rows (25lbs), cable pull down (60lbs), barbell deadlifts (50lbs), and bicep curls (20lbs). I wish I’d paid more attention to these weights since I should have maintained the 50 lb deadlift yesterday, too.

Thursday

20lb dumbbell bench press, 10b dumbbell flys (which were still hard even with little weights), 10b felt raise (also hard), unassisted dips (holy-crap-hard), and 3.39 miles in 30 minutes. Plus P90’s Ab Ripper A.

Friday

Really just not into my workout today. I did about half of my P90 Speed Sculpt workout before I just quit it and went to the gym. It was an “active rest” day from lifting so I forced myself to run. 1.02 miles, 9:16

Saturday

Feeling slightly better, and I went to the gym in the morning before my life could catch up with me. 40lbs squat, deadlift, 25lbs dumbbell lunges, calf raises, P90’s Saturday Special, and 3 miles in 28:14 minutes.

Weekend Workout Recap

This is actually pretty exciting because this is the first week I’ve had that I’ve been able to consistently plan and workout. Of course, that’s because my job is way less than it used to be, but I’m going to make the most of it while I can.

Monday

Day 1 P90- Sculpt A. My resistance bands are confusing.

Tuesday

Day 2 P90-Sweat A/Ab Ripper A + Day 1 Lee Labrada program, just dumbbell row, bicep curls, and rowing. The P90 ab program is NO JOKE.

Wednesday

Day 3 P90-Sculpt A + Day 2 Lee Labrada. I figured out that the different resistance bands have different resistance. Unfortunately none are stretchy enough to go all the way over my head. I try using water bottles but felt stupid so I tried modifying it on my knees. Didn’t work either. I ordered a small weight set online.

LL had me doing incline dumbbell flys, side lateral raises, lying triceps press, and bench dips. The people here are mostly big burly dudes who use big dude weights. I realized I couldn’t do lat raises without making awful faces so I resigned myself to using smaller, daintier weights.

Thursday

Day 4 P90- Sweat A/Ab Ripper A + Day 3 LL. Ab Ripper A was still hard. Ran 3.2 miles on the treadmill in 28:30 and did 1000m of rowing.

Friday

Day 5 P90- Sculpt A + Day 4 LL – squats, dumbbell lunges, calf raises, quad extensions, which were ungodly hard.

Saturday

Day 6 P90- Saturday Special + Day 5 LL – negative chin-ups, dumbbell rows, concentration curls, back extensions, and 3.42 miles in 30 minutes. Still really sore from leg day, P90 felt like a special hell.

Sunday

Was supposed to do 30 minutes of cardio. Instead, I drafted my fantasy football team for the year, put in my packet for R&R, almost finished booking P’s flight, and celebrated my first real cheat day with crab legs (CRAB LEGS! IN AFGHANISTAN!) and macaroni and cheese for dinner. And cake. And cookies. It was glorious.
